Hit the Road!

09/20/18

Good morning Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project made with the new On Our Way collection.

Hit the road full

There is just something about the fun mix of patterns in the On Our Way collection that I can’t get enough of! I just love that bold yellow dot pattern, and mixed it with the simple teal grid on a plain white cardstock background. The bold colors blend nicely with the help of some awesome ephemera  to tie it all together.

I added in some buttons from the Happy Place collection that co-ordinate so perfectly with these fun colors! Just love the street sign ephemera, so perfect for documenting some of those summer road trips.

I used the chipboard letters from the Family & Co collection to make a bold title, mixed with the enamel letters in the  On Our Way collection too. Love that mix of fonts together. Can’t get enough of those chipboard letters either!

The Road Less Traveled

09/18/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my newest project created with “On Our Way” collection. I just love those bright colors and fun graphics included in this line. I think it’s my favorite Fancy Pants collection so far. I am a big fan of every summer / travel themed items because I love scrapbooking our family vacations. There are always so many feelings and memories behind those pictures. This time I decided to use photo of a splendid view we had on Monte Capane while we visited Elba Island.
1-2
I wanted the picture to be a main focus of my page so I printed it big. With large photos on layouts you don’t have much space left for embellishing. I used this narrow strip under the picture to add colorful stripes of paper cut of 6*6 paper pad. I decided to use grey paper called “Now bording” as a neutral background.
2-2
We took a car trip around the Elba Island, enjoying views, climbing mountain and taking some beach time. That’s why I picked some retro cars from ephemera pack along with mountain silhouettes as an embellishments. Title came easy by connection big “adventure” with Elba word created with alpha stickers.
3-2
I love how colorful this layout is and how well you can see this wonderful view with sea and mountains on it. Big pictures look so well on pages.
That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

Tuscany Vacation

09/12/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my second inspiration created with “On Our Way” collection. I am a huge fan of every travel / summer themed collection and this one is no exception. Bold, vivid colors are to fun to work with but the ephemera pack is to die for. I love all those funny inscriptions included into this pack. Just a real life “words”, because travels are not always perfect.
1
I really like stamp set that is included into this collection and I decided to use it to customize my background. You do not need much to make similar one – just a white cardstock and few colorful ink pads.
2
It took me like half an hour to get stamping done. I didn’t want to overload the page and cover the background so I decided to keep it simple. I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo and 6*6 paper pad. It’s just perfect for cutting smaller elements.
3
My layout is about my favorite place I visited so far – Tuscany. Those lovely hills, with rows of cyprysses leading to traditional villas. Fields filled with grapevines and olive trees makes you want to sit and relax. Trully idyllic place.
4
After adding a title and picture and I picked few pieces from ephemera pack to finish my project. I also added flair button and few buttons from Flair and button mix.
5
Simple and easy. I will also add my journaling on the page but I wanted to keep it private :) I hope you feel inspired by my project and you will also reach for stamps to create your own background.

Creative Card Trio

09/11/18

Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio featuring the On Our Way collection.
Today by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love the Planes, Trains & Automobiles stripe panel.  I used a oval die and centered it on the panel.  I used an ephemera piece from The Bright Side Collection.  Love how you can mix and match collections.
Today close up by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love wreaths on doors.  I think it is a welcoming touch for guests.  The wreath and family ephemera do not have any adhesive on them.  The clothes pin anchors them on the card.
Flight plan duo by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
This card duo were made especially for some friends that are both pilots.  Le’ts chat about the Flight Plan one first.

I’m smitten by this color duo, aren’t you?  So unexpected but fresh and fun.  I used a star die and added another star to the tag from the Tag collection.  I added a die cut hello from my stash.
thanks by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the On Our Way Collection, it is filled with such fun colors and designs!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Welcome Banner

09/10/18

Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you to share a new Project using Fancy Pants Designs Magnolia Moments Collection.

For today’s post, I have created two garlands, one has a lot of rosettes and the other one has some banners/little flags.

Here is a look at both garlands:

For the first one, I created some paper rosettes and I added some chipboard spools to some of them. Once I had them all done, I adhered a piece of paper on the back because I wanted to hang them on my wall.

For the second one, I cut some banners and some circles from the back side of the ‘our story’ paper. I placed the circles over the banners and also added some of the puffy alphas and created the word welcome.

I hope you liked these ideas. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!

Good Times Ahead!

09/04/18

Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project made with the new On Our Way collection.

Good time ahead full

It’s hard not to love the ephemera pieces in the On Our Way collection pack. The ephemera pack is jammed with perfect images for travel/holiday themed projects. I decided to use several of these ephemera pieces as the embellishment for my page, adding the bright striped patterned paper behind a simple piece of white cardstock.

Good time ahead cl1

And seriously, how fun is that Good Time Ahead piece! It made the perfect (and easy! Ha!) title for my page, just popped up with some foam adhesive for some subtle POP on my page. I couldn’t resist adding some stamped images along the bottom grouping on my page either, the fun stamps that are in the On Our Way collection are too cute not to use!

Good time ahead cl2
